I have visited the Mead Café many times. Only once was I disappointed with their food, and it was their Niçoise salad, which had too many clashing flavors. Overall, the food is consistently delicious, well prepared, and beautifully presented. By the way, the Pavlova with homemade ginger ice cream (in the photo) was spectacular! The café is cozy inside and... More

Such a lovely space in George hidden away in the centre of town. The service was good and there is plenty of space to sit down and have a great breakfast. We only found out about the rear entrance on our third visit, it makes entering with a wheelchair/stroller much easier! The food is very fresh and great tasty. The... More

I went twice in one day, first for lunch then for cake and coffee. I had the chicken curry, my substitution request for the rice was accepted which was great but the chicken was on the verge of being raw as it still had a slimy texture. The coffee was awesome but the desserts/cakes my friend and I tried were... More

We just spent a month in George and this was our definite favorite! The French bistro feel was very inviting as you feel like spending the day in the beautiful garden and restaurant. We had breakfast at one visit. My Eggs Benedict was by far the best I have ever eaten. My second visit I had salmon that was perfectly... More
